Looking For A Map

Post by Spazzy McGee » Mon Dec 18, 2006 11:48 am

Hey all.
I'm looking for a map that was hosted about this time last year, and was quite popular:

It had a central block area, not unlike planet mofo, but around the edes were buildings and structures that provided 'camping' areas suited to lots of different flags. For example there was an area for superbullet which was simply lots of criss-crossing blocks that you could get inside.

The GroundMaterial was the rogue tank texture.

Does anybody know what the name of the server or the map was?

Edit: Urgh; /me dosn't look hard enough. It's still hosted at 0.bladica.net:5156 - This post can be deleted.

OK, since Spazzy found his map, maybe we can find the one I liked about a year and a half (maybe 2 years) ago. I believe it was called "Tower", and was pretty popular for a while. In the middle there was, of course, a tower (6 sided if i remember correctly). It was maybe 10 tanks around and had teleporters for sides. If you tried to get in (or shoot) from the sides it just turned you back around. There was a trick to getting in through the top, and once inside you could shoot out at everyone else. There were also 4 cubes that floated above the ground with teleporters all around them also (great for GM's). There were tracks and bridges up high so you could get into them and to the top of the tower. I have looked for this map for sometime with no luck. Does anyone know who made it or where it is at? I would be willing to host it if it is not up somewhere.

Two ships, by Big Cheese, I think. I have a copy of the map around somewhere...
[EDIT]-{yeah, I have one, but is has a lot of options cut out. I think my
BZFS was choking on them, so I got rid of them. If you want it, just say so.
This one has red and blue modern arcraft-carrier ships in water.

i have found no pictures or a thread about this map but this may be what you're looking for. this was a fine map although i was spending more time rusting in the water than fighting. i doubt it was made by louman btw.

Yeah, that was who I thought it was, and I didn't get to editing my post in time. I looked around for it, and didn't find anything.
